Welcome to the Livingston County Humane Society website!

 

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! We will soon resume our visits to local nursing homes/assisted living facilities. We do this on Mondays approximately 1:00 – 3:00 PM. For each volunteer we have, we can take one of our animals. The more volunteers, the more animals! The residents so look forward to our visits, and it gives our animals much needed opportunity to socialize with new people.

If interested, contact the shelter and leave your name and phone number and we will get back to you with further details. Our number is 815-842-1025.

Schedule and guidelines for walking dogs by volunteers:

The board and staff at LCHS are truly grateful for the wonderful support from the community to help us exercise and socialize the animals at the shelter. The current group of walkers are dedicated animal lovers and we appreciate them all. We are committed to protecting our animals, our staff, and our volunteers. The schedule and guidelines we outline below are intended to improve our process and show clarity and structure for all involved.

Due to the need to adhere to local laws and regulations, combined with our limited staff availability, LCHS can currently support out-of-hours dog-walking at the following times:

  • Tuesdays from 3pm to 6pm
  • Thursdays from 3pm to 6pm
  • Saturdays from 2pm to 4:30pm
  • Sundays from 3pm to 6pm

In addition to the hours above, LCHS welcomes volunteers to socialize and exercise the animals at any time during normal opening hours. These guidelines apply only to the animals at LCHS and do not apply to animals temporarily housed at the shelter on behalf of Livingston County Animal Control, which is under the jurisdiction of the County. We are happy to extend our out-of-hours support for dog-walking and cat socialization.

If you are interested in volunteering for exercising and socializing our dogs and cats, we invite you to contact us.
